Yes. The USB port on the Airport Extreme is powered. If your external hard drive supports power over the USB port, it can be used.

You can connect a hard drive that does not have a power cord as long as you use a usb port as a buffer. For example, I have a hard drive hooked up through a 4 port usb hub and it works great.
